This event is an introduction to the Cyber Essentials scheme.
Cyber Essentials was introduced nearly 10 years ago by the Government.
The scheme has evolved, most recently this year, and provides an effective foundation for an organisations cyber security posture.
The session will give attendees the opportunity to have an overview of the scheme and its benefits, and then a chance to ask any questions relating to any aspect of it, including but not exclusively relating to, ‘What’s coming next on the horizon?’, or any deeply technical questions on its implementation/assessment/audit.
